We have a new librarian at our Havelock Library and her name is Shannon Sutton. She comes to us with eight years experience in the Duplin County public libraries. She will be graduating with her Masters in Library Science from ECU on Sat., Dec.15th. We send congratulations to her as she celebrates this accomplishment! She lives in Lenoir County and is looking forward to working at our library. Stop in and meet her.
There will be more information about the Let’s Talk About It Series coming soon.
In the meantime the Havelock Literary and Crab Pot Society continues to meet and the next meeting will be Jan.25th at 10:00 am to discuss the book, The World’s Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne. The books and discussion guides are now available at our library and can be signed out. I will be glad to “lead” the group if no one else volunteered.
Claire has agreed take over the communication for our group starting in February.
The luncheon for the library staff will be Dec.17th. We invite you to bring in a lunch item or treat for these great people. A small plate of cookies or candy will be appreciated. Please bring items in by 11:00 am that day. If you have questions, please email me.

NOVEMBER NEWS FROM THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
The Library is open with limited space. Preschool Story Hour is going on in the Redd Building room 126 on the campus of Craven Community College right across from the library Thursdays at 10:40 am. K-2 Story Hour is at the library on the 1st and 3rd Fridays at 4 pm.
The next meeting of the Havelock Literary and Crab Pot Society is scheduled for Nov. 30th at 10:00 am at the library to discuss The Help.
The chiller unit for the library has been ordered and installation is expected to happen later this month. When this happens, you will be able to use all areas of the library and it will be a quieter space than it is now. Stand by for more information. In the meantime, you can borrow books from other libraries, purchase used books and magazines, copy and fax items, and ask any one of our wonderful staff to find a book in the library. They are happy to help.
The Friends of the Havelock Library extend their thanks to those who supported out BUNCO event held Nov. 4th at Township Six Fire Department. It was great fun and we were thrilled by the success of the event. If you attended and have comments, please send them to me or call me ( 252-670-1105).
A bird pin was found in the parking lot of the fire department after this event . The pin is at the library if it is yours.
The Friends are sponsoring a new raffle for a Crab Pot Christmas tree. It is on display in the library and tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. The drawing will be held well before Christmas so the winner can enjoy this beautiful decoration.
Margie Garrison’s last day at the library is Nov. 30th. Please be sure to wish her well in her retirement.
The next Friends of the Library meeting is Nov. 28th. We are hoping to meet at the library.

If any of you supported the Friends of the Library BUNCO event which was held Sunday, November 4th; we extend our thanks to you! WE had a very successful event and, I think, everyone had fun.
We are moving the discussion date for Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women’s Literary Society to Wednesday, November 7th to give members of our group time to read the book. Stay tuned for the location of the discussion.

Updated post from Margie Garrison, Librarian:
“The dean of the Havelock campus of Craven Community College has informed us that the air conditioning system has broken and cannot be repaired. A new one has been ordered and should be available in six to eight weeks. The library is currently closed but we are intently looking into ways to open with limited hours and limited services. We will let you know as soon as we can.”
Thank you for your patience.
This is a message from Margie Garrison:
The moisture control company that C-P-C hired came into the library this morning. The moisture issue is under control but our air conditioning is still out. We have limited portable air conditioning but with that we have ten power cords running throughout the library to keep the moisture down. We cannot open under those conditions. Craven Community College owns the building and they have sent out bids to replace the air conditioning system. When they succeed with that we will be able to open. I do not have a timeline for that.
We will open our book drop so you can return materials. Thank you for your patience.
Sorry for this disappointing news. Please check back for further information.
